Father's Day is this Sunday, 21 June.

And while you may still not be allowed to visit in person according to lockdown regulations, you can still get him something in lieu of actual face-to-face time.

Limitations have lifted somewhat since Mother's Day, so you definitely have more gift options.

As tempting as getting him a pair of thick socks may be as temperatures drop, Business Insider has a few ideas to help you go the extra mile:

Get him some biltong and a few extras...

Father's Day

If your dad likes biltong, Pick n Pay is offering 20% off any two packets of biltong for Father's Day.

Or get him a gourmet hamper from Netflorist - it comes with a bottle of wine and chocolate for R269. 

You can also look at the nuts, biltong and chocolate combination, or a biltong/droëwors combination with his favourite tipple - just remember to buy it before 17:00 on Thursday.
